Logic Apps

Logic Apps allow developers to design workflows that articulate intent via a trigger and series of steps, each invoking an App Service API app whilst securely taking care of authentication and best practices like durable execution.
If you have any feedback or ideas on Azure Logic Apps we’d love to hear it.

  1. Deployed Logic App Designer View Different than Actual Deployed Version

    I found a situation where, if I open the Logic App in the portal designer, I am seeing a very old version of it (which it seemingly would allow me to edit). However, this is not actually the real runtime version. If I go into the history and look at the latest, it reflects what I actually deployed. Additionally, when I execute the workflow and look at the workflow execution details, it is also correct. I am speculating that the potential cause of this is that 1) I first deployed the app from Visual Studio; 2) I edited the app,…

        • EDIFACT

          I just tested both EDIFACT Encode (by Identities and by agreement) i tryed to create an output file into drop box, for the output content I tryed different Tag:
          Transformed XML: show me the EDIFACT Message as XML, this is correct.
          Payload: I think this should be the correct EDI File but what I get is not an EDIFACT file, no idea where these values are coming from. (see attachment)

          Was this tested? As an EDIFACT expert I'm happy to help if needed

          • Retry doesn't work with SFTP connector

            There is something called RetryPolicy available for logic app actions to retry the actions in case of intermittent connectivity issues. I tried this option with an SFTP connector but was not able to find a scenario where the retry would happen.

            My intention was to make sure the SFTP file upload action would retry at 1 min interval for 3 times. For this I renamed the sftp folder temporarily, but the workflow run itself failed and in the very first attempt.

            We need a solution such that for any kind of error, we should be able to retry.

            • O365 Outlook Connector - designer removes attachments array

              I have a very simple logic app, consisting of two actions:
              1. Request (trigger)
              2. O365 outlook connector - send email

              The first lines of my logic app:
              "$schema": "https://schema.management.azure.com/providers/Microsoft.Logic/schemas/2016-06-01/workflowdefinition.json#",
              "actions": {
              "Send_an_email": {
              "inputs": {
              "body": {
              "Attachments": "@triggerBody()['attachments']",
              "Body": "@{triggerBody()['mailBody']}",
              "Cc": "@{triggerBody()['ccToAddress']}",

              Now when I save this app in code view it works perfectly fine. As soon as I make the mistake of opening the app in the designer it removes the 'attachments' line.

                • Is there any way to trigger logic app without trigger via Workflow Management API?

                  I have used the below Workflow Management API(API-Version 2015-02-01-preview) to trigger the logic app

                  https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/resourceGroups/{ResourceGroupName}/providers/Microsoft.Logic/workflows/{WorkflowName}/run?api-version=2015-02-01-preview

                  But after GA of logic app above API is deprecated so now new API is
                  https://{endpoint}/subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/resourceGroups/{resourceGroupName}/providers/Microsoft.Logic/workflows/{workflowName}/triggers/{triggerName}/run?api-version=2016-06-01

                  But above API requires the trigger name but my logic apps doesn't contain any trigger.

                  So is there any ways i can trigger logic app without trigger via Workflow Management API?

                  • Add pay as you go connector APIs rather than rate limiting

                    It would be very useful to have the option to exceed the current limits set for some of the connectors, such as sending messages to a queue one by one can very quickly hit the limit.

                      Depending on the connector rate limiting can either protect the backend from abuse or the shared application resource to the service from being taken by a single user. Rate limits are re-evaluated based on usage and scale needs. If there’s a particular connector that is not meeting your throughput requirements let us know. We also recommend using the Circuit Breaker enterprise integration pattern for handling endpoint rate limits.

                      I was working with Drobbox, Sendgrid, Onedrive and FTP connectors and suddenly find it not available though earlier created logic apps still got it. Is there a way, I can get back connectors and templates and work the way I was comfortable. The new one is good but just cant hop to new one find day. Thanks for great platform.

                          Logic Apps is not part of the App Service infrastructure and cannot be deployed to an ASE. To connect across a VNET the recommended pattern is to either use the on-premises data gateway for on-prem connectors or use API Management which can span VNETs/Express Route.

                        • Sort the list of actions in the Azure portal's Logic App run blade...

                          based on the dependsOn values (not alphabetically as it is today). For actions with multiple dependent child actions, sort those alphabetically or some other way, but continue to group dependent child actions together.

                            • Change the name from Azure Logic Apps to Azure Integration Apps

                              I think this simple name change will add clarity to this service. All apps have "logic" in them of some sort. By changing the name to "integration", anyone looking at the service by name can place the capabilities with adapters, transformation and transport. Consider the following for context - it's integration - http://www.enterpriseintegrationpatterns.com/eaipatterns.html

                              • How to prevent trigger recurrance overlapping with action processing?

                                Polling triggers bear the risk of action processing overlapping with the next recurrence if processing takes longer than the recurrence interval. Thus instead we often use (a) loops with a delay or (b) fire-once timers (at the end of processing).

                                a)
                                Do
                                <some action>
                                await Taks.Delay(3000, cancellationToken)
                                Loop

                                b)
                                Start()
                                _pollTimer.Change(0, Timeout.InfiniteTimeSpan)

                                _pollTimer_Elapsed()
                                <some action>
                                _pollTimer.Change(_pollInterval, Timeout.InfiniteTimeSpan)

                                How can we tackle this problem with Logic Apps?
